London sets up resilience centre to fight Cyber Crime

Amid the political crisis in England and Rishi Sunak taking charge as Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, a Cyber Resilience Centre(CRC) was established in London and became operational from October 25th,2022.

The centre will act as an epicenter to fight cyber crime and will hereon act as an extension to the National Cyber Resilience Centre Group (NCRCG), based in England and Wales and funded by UK’s Home Office.

CRC will not only act as a sharing point of threat intelligence, but will also support around 20,000 business functioning in London in improving their cyber posture by help training their staff, offering cyber essentials and cyber essentials plus certifications, thus assisting them to join London’s’ Safer Business Network- an initiative started in London almost 2 years ago.

Going deep into the details, NCRCG was started in the year 2019 by the then City of Police Commissioner, Angela McLaren. CRC was established in April this year and became fully operational from October first week. The model is a copy of Scottish Business Resilience Centre that has been running successfully from the past 20-25 years.

NOTE- NCRCG also shares threat information with NCSC aka National Cyber Security Centre, a cyber arm of GCHQ. The former’s aim is to save public and private sectors from security threats prevailing in the current cyber landscape. Lindy Cameron is the acting CEO of the organization and might be replaced soon, after Rishi Sunak takes charge as PM on a complete note by the same time next month.
